The Mint State 1861 is very rare and acquiring a MS63 example is a much greater challenge than acquiring, for example, a Gem Mint State-65 1878, a coin which is possibly absolutely rare in the designated grade. While we refer to this example, 1878 Three dollar gold pieces, in grades of or exceeding MS63, are ONLY very scarce at best and the Market Participant searching for excellent value would, as a general rule, be better served seeking and acquiring an issue of this series (1854-1889) which retains its rarity throughout the Uncirculated grade range, such as the present 1861. With an absurdly low population of just 12 coins with 4 finer, it’s easy to see how really very rare this issue is, especially with an original mintage of a mere 5,959 coins. The present specimen displays brilliant honey-gold striated fields, almost mirror-like. The mint-made striations serve well to camouflage the few hairlines that make the Very Choice Mint State grade of MS64.
